Dear friends,


From 23rd to the 25th September, the EUROPOM 2016 will take place within the framework of the Oekofoire at
the Luxexpo in Luxemburg-­‐City, the same location as in 2007. We would very much like to invite you to this event and we hope that you will have the possibility to join us.

Similarly to the former EUROPOM-­‐Exhibitions, we expect participants from at least 10 European countries, who
will bring diverse regional fruit varieties. The event thus is an excellent opportunity to meet experts from all over
Europe with their different types of fruits and to benefit from their expertise.

natur&ëmwelt/Fondation Hëllef fir d’Natur is responsible for organizing the EUROPOM 2016. Apart from other nature protection projects and activities, natur&ëmwelt/Foundation Hëllef fir d’Natur is also active in the preservation of the arboriculture heritage in Luxemburg (naturwemwelt.lu, bongert.lu).

We luckily have the opportunity to be part of the Oekofoire (oekofoire.lu), the biggest ecological exhibition in the
Greater Region with 10.000 to 13.000 visitors in 3 days.
